Mycorrhizal Systems Ltd. is a company founded on significant technological advances in the production of black truffles (Tuber melanosporum)

Having built the worlds largest truffle research network, we believe our technique is one of the most technologically advanced, thorough and scientific methods currently employed to cultivate the black truffle. We also work with the summer truffle (Tuber aestivum var. uncinatum) and spring truffle (Tuber borchii).

Our production technique used for partnership plantations has the following benefits:
100% DNA-identified inoculums (if requested), high inoculation levels, large substrate levels and reduced contamination. Twinned with thorough monitoring our technique should lead to greater yields and increased harvest reliability.

We are very pleased to announce that our first Australian black truffle was harvested in 2012 and our frst Spanish black truffle in 2013. With our UK technology being implemented in Australia, we produced the tree in 2009 and at just three years old, it began production. This was our first Southern hemisphere cultivated truffle and it was produced with the same technology we use worldwide, from Europe to South Africa and the United States.

    During our 2015 Napa Truffle Festival, we ran a very successful fungi foray with mycologists David Campbell and Stephanie Jarvis.

    After recent rains the finds were incredibly varied with prized edibles including matsutake and elfin saddle-backs.

    The real star of the foray though, was a surprise find of a rare truffle species by Lolo and her expert handler Alana McGee.

    Around the base of a young Douglas fir a fruity-smelling truffle was unearthed.
